Sim Challenge

2018 Sim Challenge

In life or death situations, the practice of medicine is never a game.  But preparing for it can be!  Be a part of AMSA’s Sim Challenge at AMSA’s Annual Convention and Exposition, March 8-11.  Over the course of Convention, teams will compete in a series of simulated clinical scenarios requiring medical knowledge, clinical skills, teamwork, and communication.  In each round, teams will be presented with a clinical case.  Each team will have ~15 minutes to evaluate, discuss, and present their findings.  A panel of judges will determine the winner for each round.  Eight teams, seven elimination rounds.  One team victorious.

The winning team will have the opportunity to compete in the European simulation competition June 27-29 in Barcelona, Spain.
